IAG – Advice & Guidance

Dutton Fisher Associates Ltd has a focus on supplying everyone with Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) throughout their period of studying with us. We understand the importance of everyone accessing IAG that is accurate, up to date and easily understood, whether this be in relation to their qualification or their well-being.

The aim of our IAG offer is to enable individuals to achieve qualifications to professionalise themselves in the workplace and support their ongoing career management and development.

We recognise that some people will need IAG to overcome their barriers to learning. Some people will need IAG to be supported through a particularly stressful time, others will need IAG to aid their professional development.

At DFA we recognise that IAG needs to be responsive to changes and developments both at an individual level as well as an organisational level.

Our IAG Objectives are to:

  • Increase opportunity awareness in relevant sectors and vocational areas
